TOKYO -- Japan will support the construction of liquefied natural gas terminals across Asia, aiming to take a leading presence in the expanding market before its position as world's largest buyer is overtaken by China in the near future.

Japan currently supports companies involved in LNG projects through investment and loan guarantees via a government-backed natural resource company -- Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp., or Jogmec.
